Have the two of you spoken about marriage, your life together or a proposal at all? If not I would tread lightly here. And even if you have, while it does sound promising, I would advise you not to get your hopes up as this could set you up for dissapointment. He could be planning a surprise weekend getaway or something for all we know (which is pretty romantic on its own!). 

Personally I would tell him that if he genuinely wants to surprise you he needs to shut up about it! The more he mentions it the more you will think about and try to figure it out. Try your best to forget all thoughts of a proposal and the surprise so that when you get your surprise, whatever it may be, you can be happy and grateful that he went to the effort.

It sounds like you’ve got a great relationship going on there.  Try to relax & enjoy it.  It’s only been a few months.  When the time feels right, you can have the timeline discussion.

Don’t get too worked up over a proposal at this stage.  After all, you don’t read a good book just to get to the end.

I think you’re looking into this way too much. How much have you talked about marriage and your future together? If not that much, it probably shouldn’t be something you anticipate. If it is a proposal, congratulations! But if it’s not, you don’t want to be disappointed. 

My boyfriend told me the first week we were together that he was going to marry me and started asking me what kind of ring I want – but it’s nothing I ever expected would come before a year of dating. We have a similar relationship to yours, and already talked about moving in together less than two months in. 21 months later, still no proposal. However, he’s been getting the ring custom-made for 6 months. I guess what I’m trying to say is, no matter how perfect things are, marriage may not be in the cards immediately played.

Just breathe.  Surprises can really be anything!

Wow, chill! Unless you’re a little older with a biological ticking clock there’s no need to rush such a young relationship. It sounds like it’s going great, so just sit back and enjoy it! You’ll ne playing a long waiting game if it turns out it’s a different surprise, so I’d put it out of your mind, and if it does happen, make sure you’ve already carefully thought out your answer!
